1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: First Clothing Piece - Summer Dress (but for Christmas..) on: July 17, 2009 09:50:03 AM
i know how you feel.  This is the first ever dress i ever made too.  I could not get the gathering even under the bust so added darts instead which made even more problems, and all this after a one day workshop on how to sew on a machine i've had in my cupboard for years and never used.

this was the first dress i ever made and i just couldn't get the gathering under the bust even on both sides....then i put darts instead and made myself a whole host more problems lol.  Yours looks great though Smiley
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: Yet another "52" reasons book (img obese) on: February 10, 2009 02:13:00 AM
Question:  I made all the cards and they look great but how do you get the holes lined up?  The hole punch i have is too wide, i need holes closer together but if i just guess then the cards won't have holes in exactly the same place.  Hmm what did you do?
4  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: 5 hour baby sweater ( Quick xmas gift ) on: December 05, 2008 01:49:39 AM
cheers, i kinda managed a rough thing and it worked out ok except it's a cardi not a sweater and is knit from the collar down.  Did not know this which added to confusion.  Gonna re do but maybe i'll try your version.  Thanks Smiley
5  KNITTING / Knitalongs / 5 hour baby sweater ( Quick xmas gift ) on: December 02, 2008 03:37:30 AM
I have been looking for a quick baby sweater to knit as gifts for several babies this christmas and i found this http://www.woolworks.org/patterns/5-hour.txt  It fits the bill since it only takes 5 hours (Apparently).  Or NOT.  The pattern is written in a very strange way so my plan was to do the first part which is straight forward then try to work the rest out at the time.  But i am also rubbish at lace knitting and so have frogged the whole lot twice already as i had some mysterious holes where ther should be none!!! Would anyone like to join me and see if we can work it out together???

I'd really like to join this but i'm moving house this month and don't know if i have the time.  Plus i have only done one other swap which didn't involve small, large items etc... so could someone give me a guide as to what a small, medium, and large item would be then i can decide if i have time to join.  Cheers Smiley

Does anyone know what they're doing with theirs yet?  Or even better, has anyone started doing anything with theirs yet?

Hey i have a link for you all: http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/WebLetter/62/Issue62.php  If you still have bits of yarn left from this swap, i thought these would be great for the xmas tree and would use up those odd balls.  So i thought i'd share with you all.   Actually though i just checked and the pattern says you need 100g of yarn!!! Surely not.  That must be for a whole string of them.  Enjoy x

i'm too busy to do a swap at the mo as i'm moving house but i just wanted to say thanks for that cute mini sock pattern.  There will definately be some on my tree this winter Smiley
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: 'Roam' poncho by Rowan on: October 24, 2008 10:18:13 AM
lol to be honest i stay away from poncho's too but the girl modelling looked so lovely and rustic so i thought i'd have a go.  I do like it and it's VERY warm.  Does anyone know how to block 100 % wool as the edges curl but i don't wanna shrink it.  Think it looks a younger style because of the hood.  Goes nice with my skinny jeans and uggs  Cheesy
